I totally want this human skull bowl by Etsy shop Catacomb Culture. The handmade skull bowl sells for $100. Kind of pricey in my opinion, but isn’t it a beauty? The bowl is perfect for Halloween or just because you want to eat out of a damned skull bowl! No one is judging you.

According to the listing it’s not machine washable, it’s hand wash only!

A skull and crossbones hair bun cover

This is actually a clever design that I may incorporate into my own wardrobe (when appropriate, of course): a wire skull and crossbones bun cover by Kyle Wyatt of Etsy shop Wyre Art. I think you would need pretty long hair for this to work as the skull itself appears wide and big.

This look ain’t for no tiny man buns! It’s best that way, if you ask me.

Unfortunately, it appears the shop is currently sold out. But you can probably contact Wyre Art directly and see if they have any available and/or are able to produce more. It would certainly make for an excellent holiday gift. I know I’d dig one of these.

For the supervillain who has everything: A giant skull armchair

I’m not going to lie, this giant skull armchair designed by Gregory Besson looks pretty darn comfortable, doesn’t it? Besides that, it can really tie a room together. A certain kind of room.

Apparently the skull is made entirely of fiberglass and the black cushioning is made of leather. So far I haven’t been able to find the price of this, but I always assume when the price tag isn’t listed… it ain’t coming cheap!

If you just gotta own this chair, you can contact Gregory here at his website.

Butterfly inside the eye socket of a human skull

I’m not a big “skull art” fan, but I dig this photograph of a wee butterfly (or is that a moth?) landing inside the eye socket of a human skull.

The image, by photographer Marko Popadic, is called Oko (Polish for “eye”).

Giant skull made of human brain slices

Noah Scalin, known for creating a skull a day over the course of a year, recently created a massive one made of human brain slices for Philadelphia’s Mutter Museum.

Noah describes working with the museum’s curator and the process of creating his fascinating work of art:

Anna, the curator, asked if I could make a new skull for an upcoming project of theirs and of course I said yes, and then suggested that I make it in the museum itself. Since most of the items on display are very fragile I figured I’d be working with display jars or other non-historical materials. However, to my delight they had just acquired a collection of hundreds of beautiful real brain slices encased in acrylic (which had been dubbed “Zombie MRE’s”)! Since they’re very sturdy I was allowed to used them as my material and I was set up in a lovely room that holds the card catalog for their library. Over the course of two days I arranged the slices on two large old library tables and climbed a ladder over and over making sure the image looked right from a single vantage point (where I would eventually take my picture). All told I used 375 slices and a bit of fabric for the eye/nose holes…

As someone who has a thing for craniums and mandibles, I find this pretty damn exciting.

You can purchase Noah’s book ‘Skulls’ here.
